DUNE RATS ANNOUNCED AS OFFICIAL SUPPORT FOR THE SUBWAYS UK TOUR

DUNE RATS ANNOUNCED AS OFFICIAL SUPPORT FOR THE SUBWAYS UK TOUR

UK/EU HEADLINE RUN AND SUPPORT SLOTS WITH THE SUBWAYS

SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT MARCH 23RD

All sunshine, surfboards and stage-dives – Dune Rats’ video for ‘Superman’ is the perfect teaser for their upcoming UK shows, both in support of The Subways and as headliners in three of the UK’s gnarliest sweatboxes. Along with details of their upcoming debut album and its UK release date – that’s coming March 23rd, fact fans – the wider world are finally waking up to Australia’s best kept secret.

No-frills is pretty much Dune Rats’ motto: this is punk-rock at its most instantly disarming and infectiously high-spirited. This is a ‘skateboarding in the daytime, drinking through the night’ kinda soundtrack, and it makes them the perfect sparks for what will surely ignite The Subways’ most riotous tour to date. Never ones to take a breather, though, Dune Rats will also play three sweaty and intimate headliners – and a sneaky festival or two – on the tour’s off days, ensuring they keep the party atmosphere at its highest throughout.

FIND OUT WHAT TO EXPECT WITH THE MANIC VIDEO FOR ‘SUPERMAN’

Underneath the four-day grime and long overdue haircuts of Dune Rats’ exterior, however, lies a wonderful beach-pop bounce. Their self-titled record was recorded in just over a week after being inspired by a letter they read from Steve Albini to Nirvana pre-In Utero. That energy worms its way into a record crammed full of melodies that drive their way into your consciousness, all the while sitting comfortably alongside the riff-fuelled mania of their more fast-paced cuts. It’s one you’ll undoubtedly be humming along to all summer long.
